Welcome to Day 13 of the Season of Nonviolence – 64 Days of peaceful wisdom honoring the lives and nonviolent principles of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cesar Chavez.
Nonviolence begins with learning how to be less violent and more compassionate towards ourselves. We learn by building the courage to speak and act with respect, honor and reverence for our own being.
Day 13: CREATIVITY
"All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work ''comes'' to him." ~ Wystan Hugh Auden
We are creative beings by nature. We create our lives out of our beliefs, our dreams, actions and choices. We can create love, joy, beauty and peace, or we can create fear, sorrow, destruction and conflict. You do not have to be an artist, musician or writer to be creative - it is our nature to create.
The worst thing you can do to a human soul is to suppress its natural desire to create. Identify at least five ways in which you express your creativity everyday. Today, allow something unpredictable and joyous to express through you.
Today, consider what you have created for your life experience. Is it working for you? Journal or contemplate how to change the thoughts and beliefs that support and attract whatever is not working for you right now.
